  • Obama should tout, not criticize America

     

    It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that when trading in your old car for a new one, you don’t begin the negotiations by apologizing for it – by emphasizing it burns a quart of oil every one hundred miles, the brakes are shot, the front end needs a complete overhaul, the sunroof leaks, there is a terrible rattle in the trunk that the mechanics can’t fix, and it won’t start on rainy mornings.

  • Highway 75 is dangerous

     

    When is it going to stop? What can we do to stop it? I live on Peacewood Trail off Highway 75 at the state line. There was wreck there on Wednesday (April 22) morning. This is the second major road-closing wreck within 500 feet this week. Two days ago, the wreck was on the North Carolina side and we lost power for eight hours. 

  • Kitty Boy’s death brings gifts of kindness

     

    Josh Harger breaks through tree roots with a shovel. I can smell the freshly turned dirt.

    Sweat drips off his face as he digs, and we talk. He lets me cry.

  • Out with the old; in with the new

    Since the April 6 resignations of three council members, Kershaw Town Council has moved quickly to undo or redo some of the actions of the old council. There’s been no waste of time by the new council, which has two new members and three empty seats.

    The most significant action taken by the new council was its April 16 decision to modify the plans for a new Town Hall, already under construction on Hampton Street. The four-member council voted unanimously to modify the plans for the building, which was estimated to cost about $825,000 before furnishings.

    It’s an emotional night where the community comes together for a worthwhile cause.

  • Stimulus spending will hurt S.C.

     

    Legislative leaders are creating hysteria over federal stimulus funds, threatening to fire teachers and police officers and let criminals go free if Gov. Mark Sanford doesn’t cave and let them spend millions of one-time dollars on recurring programs.
